Ukraine vs Austria Predictions and Betting Tips
It would be a fight for automatic qualification in the final group C game as Ukraine take on Austria. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
This would only be the third meeting between both sides as they currently share a victory each in the two matches in which they’ve played. How will this encounter shape up ?
Highly-anticipated encounter on the cards
Schevchenko’s side sits in 2nd place given their superior goals tally compared to the Austrians. As such, The Yellow and Blue have shown that they’re a side capable of scoring goals with both Yaremchuk and Yarmolenko scoring two goals each in their first two matches. Can both players inspire them to yet another win to secure automatic qualification?
Austria looked rather toothless last time out against the Dutch as they were on the losing side of a 2-0 scoreline. This could be attributed to the absence of Marco Arnautovic who was banned for a game having insulted his opponents in Austria’s opening win. It is then left to see whether the forward can lead his side to all three points just like he did in the first game.
